About This Quiz

As you may already know, K-pop, which is the abbreviated form of 'Korean popular music' is a musical genre which originated in South Korea. While it does include most, if not all forms of popular music, the term is usually reserved for South Korea's pop music. This genre draws inspiration from a wide range of musical styles around the world and includes everything from rock to folk and hip-hop to electronic dance music. The movement, which began in the mid-1990s grew and has become one of the biggest, if not the biggest musical genre in the country, whose popularity has managed to surpass South Korea's borders and into Japan, the rest of Asia, and even some African countries.

But the music would be nothing without the artists, which is why we're here. We want to find out just how well you know some of the biggest, both literally and figuratively, artists and groups who make the K-pop industry what it is right now. Sure you know the likes of Psy, BTS and Jay Park, but could you identify Winner, Vixx, SHINee, and Ikon if we showed you a picture? It's time to see how much you know about the K-pop genre, so let's see how well you do.

tare on June 16, 2020:

wheres Cha Eunwoo?

Ren on June 15, 2020:

To be honest, it's your own opinion. Fandoms shouldn't argue whether or not their idol made it on the "world's most handsome faces" listen or etc. Everyone has a different taste. In my opinion, since I am an Army, BTS members are handsome in my eyes. In others, it could be Baekhyun or Mingyu. So we shouldn't argue about whos more handsome or who didn't or did make it on the list. :D

KP on June 13, 2020:

Sehun & Taehung's (V) visuals are really to the next level.

But I prefer more Sehun than V, its my opinion.

When you type a single letter on Google, it will show you various results. And these Kpop idols have a single-letter stage name which might become a nightmare to search on Google. However, they are known worldwide for their single-letter name.

Kpop Idols with single-letter name

1. BTS V

When I searched ”V” on Google, amazingly, the search engine showed precisely what I was looking for. Despite the single-letter name, it seems that Kim Taehyung, aka BTS V, is on top search. Initially, he had three options of his stage name: Six, Lex, and V. His fellow teammates and agency said that ”V” fits him best. Therefore, the lead dancer of BTS decided to go with ”V,” which stands for ”Victory.”


The main dancer of THE BOYZ, Ji Chang Min, has his own reason for choosing ”Q” as his stage name. He once explained that he decided ”Q” because the letter gives him the feeling that everything is starting.


Cha Hak Yeon has a deep reason for choosing ”N” as his stage name. It was inspired by Japanese. In Japan, the last syllable of Cha Hak Yeon is pronounced ”en,” which means ”fate” or ”destiny.” N chose the name because he believed that it was his fate to be in VIXX and meet ST★RIGHT.


The stage name of INFINITE’s visual, Kim Myung Soo, was chosen because of his resemblance to the character L from the famous anime Death Note.

5. Golden Child Y

In an interview, the Kpop idol Choi Seong Yoon revealed that he chose ”Y” as his stage name to represent Yoon, the last syllable of his real name.


STAY C’s maknae, Jang Ye Eun, almost debuted with ”Cindy” as her stage name. However, fans think that ”J” suits her perfectly, and it is her first initial too!

7. TST K

It seems that Kim Ah In, TST’s main dancer, chose ”K” as his stage name because of the initials of his family name.

8. Shinhwa M

Lee Min Woo initially uses his real name as a Kpop idol. However, he chose the stage name ”M” for his solo artist back in 2003.

9. ONF U

”U” is pronounced the same as the first syllable of ONF’s main dancer’s real name, Mizuguchi Yuto. So that might be where this Japanese Kpop idol got the idea of using ”U” as his stage name.

10. I

Korean soloist Cha Yoon Ji once explained that she chose ”I” as her stage name was because she wants to be the “I” who is dancing and singing. Besides, she likes its other meanings and homonyms: ”me,” ”eye,” ”and ”ai” in Chinese, which means ”love.”

Do you know other Kpop idols with single-letter name who deserves to be on the list? Please let us know in the comment section.

Kpop idols name

1. V (BTS)

These single-letter K-Pop idol stage names may be a nightmare to search for on Google, but despite being so short, they make a big statement.

V is the stage name of BTS’s lead dancer Kim Tae Hyung. Before he debuted, he had three possible stage names on the table: Six, Lex, and V. Ultimately, both his fellow members at the agency decided V fit him best, so he went with V to stand for “victory.”

Q is the stage name of THE BOYZ’s main dancer Ji Chang Min. Several years ago, he explained that he chose his stage name because the letter “Q” gives him the feeling that everything is starting.

N is the stage name of VIXX’s main dancer Cha Hak Yeon. While you may think this name came from the English alphabet, it was actually inspired by Japanese. In Japan, the last syllable of N’s real name is pronounced “en,” which translates to “fate” or “destiny.” As such, N chose the name because he believed it was his destiny to meet fans as an idol.

L is the stage name of INFINITE’s visual Kim Myung Soo. The only member of his group who has a stage name at all, L revealed he chose the name began of his resemblance to the character L from the famous anime Death Note.

Y is the stage name of Golden Child’s main vocalist Choi Seong Yoon. In a past interview, he revealed he chose Y to represent Yoon, the last syllable of his real name.

J is the stage name of STAYC’s maknae Jang Ye Eun. Originally, she almost debuted with the stage name Cindy, but fans think J suits her perfectly—and it’s her first initial too.

K is the stage name of TST’s main dancer Kim Ah In. It’s likely he chose the letter because it’s the initial of his family name, Kim.

M is the stage name of Shinhwa’s main dancer Lee Min Woo. While he original went by his real name as a celebrity, he chose the stage name M for his solo artist activities back in 2003.

U is the stage name of ONF’s main dancer Mizuguchi Yuto. Since U is pronounced the same as the first syllable of Yuto, that’s likely where he got the idea.

I is the stage name of soloist Cha Yoon Ji, the younger sister of Baro. In a past live broadcast, she explained that she chose the name because she wants to be the “I” who is dancing and singing. Plus, she also liked its other meanings and homonyms: “me,” “eye,” and “love,” which is “ai” in Chinese.

A very important aspect of a K-Pop idol’s career is their professional name or stage name. An artist’s stage name is sometimes based on their own choice, but oftentimes, they’re assigned by the company they’re under in order to better deliver the overall concept of the idol.

However, as these idols gain popularity and fans want to get to know them better, referring to them by their real names becomes a commonplace. As such, it is always fascinating when two idols, equally loved, share the same name! It is also not surprising then when fans find out that the two even share some character traits! At times, these idols even share their stage names!

1. RED VELVET's Joy, SNSD's Sooyoung and LOONA's Yves

Park Sooyoung, Choi Sooyoung and Ha Soo Young respectively are the real names of Red Velvet’s Joy, SNSD’s Sooyoung and LOONA’s Yves. Besides their similarity in names, their cheery personalities are also quite in sync!

2. TWICE's Jihyo, BLACKPINK's Jisoo and SEVENTEEN's Joshua

Jihyo’s legal name before joining SIXTEEN was Park Jisoo and she shares her first name with BLACKPINK’s Kim Jisoo and SVT’s Hong Jisoo.

3. NCT's Haechan and iKon's DK

7. SEVENTEEN's Woozi and BLOCK B's P.O

Woozi got his stage name from his real name, Lee Ji Hoon and the fact that people at the company would call him, “Uri Jihoonie” (our Jihoonie) which he shortened to make Woozi. P.O on the other hand, also gets his stage name from his real name Pyo Jihoon!

8. STRAY KIDS' Hyunjin and LOONA's Hyunjin

Stray Kids’ Hyunjin is Hwang Hyunjin and LOONA’s Hyunjin is Kim Hyunjin. It is not a surprise that both of these idols are considered two of the leading idols of the 4th generation of K-Pop!

9. GOT7's Jinyoung and B1A4's Jinyoung

Not only do Park Jinyoung (GOT7) and Jung Jinyoung (B1A4) share names but are also often compared for looking quite like each other. Besides, both of them are idol actors too!

10. GFRIEND's Eunha and SinB

Eunha and SinB of GFRIEND have the same name and belong to the same girl group! Their birth names are Jung Eunbi and Hwang Eunbi.

11. BTS' Jimin and Jamie Park

Two of the best vocalists of the industry are named Park Jimin. Jimin goes by the same name on stage whereas Jamie goes by Jamie Park instead.
